You know things aren't rosy when your owner has to release a statement announcing you won't be fired. That's what happening with the San Diego Chargers as team owner Dean Spanos issued a statement announcing head coach Norv Turner and GM A.J. Smith will return in 2012.

"Bottom line, I believe these two men give us the best chance to get back to the playoffs," Spanos said. "A.J. Smith is the best man to improve our roster, and Norv Turner is the best man to lead that roster on the field."

The Chargers have a franchise quarterback and a good-enough amount of talent, yet have missed the playoffs for two consecutive seasons. The Chargers appear to be slowly declining (or just staying the same) so, as a Chiefs fan, I find this to be good news.
